Concerning MIPs

We have been under fire recently for referring to MIPs in our first post and our petition. We woud like to clear up some misconceptions:

1. The first post on this blog is serving simply to illustrate how this campaign originated. We know and acknowledge that underage drinking is a crime and that TUPD has a responsibility to punish those who break the law.

2. In our petition, we simply used MIPs as an example. We admit that we could have used a different examples. For example, early in the fall semester, I was pulled over on Broadway because one of my very foolish (but sober) friend jumped on the hood of my car while I was driving. I immediately pulled over, and within minutes a TUPD officer was pulling up behind me. This I understood, but when 2 more patrol cars and 4 more officers showed up, I was baffled. I felt that it was an unnecessary amount of officers for 1 sober, non-violent incident, especially when the driver (me!) was complying fully. We meant to reference instances like this where TUPD responded with way more of a presence than necessary, when those officers could be using their time more effectively.

We would like to apologize for any misconceptions that arose from this.

About It's Not Enough

We are Tulane students who appreciate the effort TUPD gives to protect us, but believe that it is inadequate. Given the amount of assaults, robberies, burglaries and other types of crime that surrounds the Tulane Campus, we need more from TUPD. Simply put, it's not enough.
